gardenia: back to pot vs. keep as is
i planted my 8 year old gardenia is this place 5 years ago and since then it been growing nicely to the extent i trim it the sad part of the story only 3-5 buds manage to flower the rest drops. it keep dropping the buds.
I did try frequent water spray , bought special umbrella (check photo) nothing help i feel sad seeing those buds on the floor.
I think this species of Gardenia for indoor and for cooler environment and cannot tolerate the excessive hot weather in my area
i got another gardenia which looks different (leafs and flowers) very happy camper produce tons of flowers each year.
so what is your advise back to pot and move it inside the house ? or keep here as is

here is the other Gardenia few steps away although does not look elegant but they do their job A+
